Configuring Axia IP-Audio Driver to send channels in SIP Unicast AES67 format
This document describes how to configure the Axia IP-Audio Driver for Windows to send its sources as AES67 SIP Unicast. We will not discuss multicast set up in this document.
Version 2.10 and higher of the Axia IP-Audio Driver support sending stream as AES67 in either multicast or unicast format. Connections to the unicast sources by other devices are done using SIP.
Configuration of the Sources
- Launch the Axia IP-Audio Driver configuration. This can be found in Windows Control Panel.
- Enable the Source by selecting the Enable checkbox.
- Assign a friendly name. In this example, we've used PC 1.
- Leave the Channel field blank.
- Select Low Latency Stereo (AES67) as the Mode.
- If you have a multi-channel version of the Driver, repeat this for each channel.
- Click the Apply button to save and activate your changes.
This screenshot shows our properly configured sources. Sources 1 - 3 are configured as unicast. Source 4 is configured for multicast.
Receivers request these unicast sources by the string sip:<channel>@<ipaddress>:<options>
In our example, the IP-Audio Driver is at IP Address 192.168.2.26, so our connection string in the receiver would be 'sip:firstname.lastname@example.org.' No options are required.
Here is a properly configured xNode to receive the three unicast channels from the IP-Audio Driver.
